Having already conquered most of the online world, Google's developers are looking for new territory to invade, and they may have found it in your living room.
According to a report in The New York Times, Google has buddied up with Intel and Sony to develop a new platform called Google TV. Unlike existing televisions and set-top boxes with limited Web content, Google TV is being designed as an open TV platform based on Android.
Citing a "person with knowledge of the project," NYT says Google TV will use a version of Google's Chrome browser, even though it doesn't yet work on Android phones.
Other details remain pretty sparse, but those willing to speak about the project (anonymously, of course) say the technology is far enough along that Google has been able to begin a limited test run with Dish Network.
